"The Land of Stories"

When I was handed this book in my classroom to read, I looked at it and sighed. It was another book that I had no interest in picking up.

But I had to read it.

From the minute you pick it up and read the first page, you immediately find yourself being sucked into the world of Liesel Meminger in World War Two Germany. 

This book brought so many different genres into play- historical fiction, family, friendship, action and adventure, even a little bit of romance.

I ended up being one of the first people in my class to finish it because it was so intense and beautiful and surreal.

If you're looking for a good read that gives you feels and adventure, this epic story about a girl who learns to write the stories of so many people's lives, is for you.

The author's comments:

I fell in love with this book before I could even process why. One of the best works in realistic and historical fiction, in my opinion, is The Book Thief.
